You are expected to follow the following rules and guidelines. Failure to do so will result in anything from failing the project to failing the class.
If you think your proposed installations walk or cross any of these lines, ask Corey and the class to help you decide. We can often suggest alternatives that will help you stay on the right side of that invisible line.
- Do not endanger anyone or anything. This includes inanimate objects and animals and most importantly, YOU.
- If someone asks about your project, be prepared to give the elevator speech, that is, a 30 second blurb explaining it. Your elevator speech should be nonjudgmental (NO: I want to show how we’re mismanaging and destroying the Everglades YES: I’m exploring how the Everglades have been impacted by human intervention)
- You need to recognize that the observers could have a negative reaction, including aggression and abuse.
- Kill them with kindness: Try not to make anyone mad. If you are engaged in a discussion or argument, be polite.
- If you feel uncomfortable, leave the scene immediately.
- THE WORST PRANK IS A CRIME.
- Work is to be placed in a public area, or a private area or private property that you have express permission to work in.
- DO NOT BLOCK SIDEWALKS, STAIRS, OR ANY RIGHT OF WAY, EVEN WITH EXPRESS PERMISSION.
- If someone asks you to move, do so immediately and without complaint.
- Observe and respect “No Soliciting” signs.
- If you work is designed to be interactive, make sure people have to opt in to participate.
